Embark on a beautiful Nile journey
Welcome to the Nile, Egypt's lifeline since the ancient times of Pharaohs and Pyramids. Embark on a unique journey along this mighty African stream and explore the wonders of Egypt on your way from Aswan to Luxor. Upon your arrival in Aswan, our representative will meet and assist you for your transfer to your home for the next days, the elegant MS Nile Dolphin Cruise. Embark the ship and take up your quarters before diving right into your Egyptian adventure, when visiting Aswan's High Dam. This technological masterpiece helped regulate the waters of the Nile by preventing floods and hence was and is vital to Egypt's industrialization process. Move on to the Aswan stone quarries afterwards to visit the largest known ancient obelisk, the Unfinished Obelisk, which, had it been erected, would have measured up to 42 meters. The site offers unusual insights into the stone-working techniques of this fascinating ancient civilization. Last but not least you will continue your tour of Aswan at the Philae Temple complex devoted to goddesses Isis and Hathor. Back aboard your cruise ship, enjoy delicious meals prepared by skilled staff and enjoy the comfort of the ship over lunch and dinner. The night will be spent in Aswan, before setting sail in the morning.
Cruising along the Nile to Luxor
Set off to sail along the beautiful Nile as you enjoy your breakfast and head towards Kom Ombo for your first stop. Visit the agricultural town with its Kom Ombo Temple. The religious site is famous for its unique style as it is a double temple, that mirrors all of its courts, halls and sanctuaries in perfect symetry. This way, the temple serves as a devotional site not only for one, but for two ancients gods, crocodile god Sobek and falcon god Horus. Back on the cruise, you can enjoy the beautiful passing scenery of Egypt and the Nile as you proceed towards Edfu for your next stop. After lunch on board, you will visit the the Temple of Edfu. This religious site from the Ptolemaic era is one of the best-preserved temples in all of Egypt and an important source to understanding ancient Egyptian culture and language. After this in-depth insight into Egyptian culture, enjoy sailing further north towards Luxor and relax aboard the cruise with its many facilities. Savor the delicious dinner as you approach Luxor with a late arrival and enjoy a good night's sleep in your comfortable cabin.
The banks of Luxor
Welcome to the city of palaces, ancient metropolis of Egypt, Luxor. Get ready to explore more of Egypt's mystique as you visit Luxor's East Bank. You will visit the famous Karnak and Luxor temples with their unique location right in the midst of the city. Stroll through the many chapels, obelisks and temples and enjoy one of the world's largest open-air museums to feel history come to life. Upon your return to the cruise, you will enjoy one last delicious dinner aboard your lovely home for the past three days, full of new experiences and memories made here in mesmerizing Egypt.

Oh, beautiful Egypt
How fast three days pass by. It is true, your cruise journey along the mighty Nile has already come to an end. You have seen ancient Egypt come to life at fascinating temples and enjoyed the terrific beauty of the Nile scenery. This Egyptian journey might not have shown you every corner of this fascinating country, but definitely some of the best ones. Enjoy one last breakfast aboard the MS Nile Dolphin before disembarkation and then visit West Bank. Situated here is the legendary Valley of the Kings, where 62 pharaohs lay buried. As the principal burial site for major royal figures for over 500 years, tombs here are elaborately decorated and a spectacular sight to visit to this day. Glowing example for this is the mortuary temple of Queen Hatshepsut, one of the central figures of Egypt's New Kingdom era. Continue your highlight tour of ancient Egyptian royalty at the impressive twin Colossi of Memnon, depicting Amenhotep III majestically facing the Nile.
